 We've been preparing for Easter this week with EGGS.  In class at church, Molly and Rayna made Resurrection eggs which tell the story of the true meaning of Easter.  We are also preparing for our Easter egg hunt at church, and Molly has been helping to stuff eggs.  She stuffed 150 at home all by herself and then we had an egg stuffing party and stuffed another 1,000!  She's gotten quite good at egg stuffing!

Grandma and Grandpa Hines

 Grandpa and Grandma came for a visit today.  It was a lovely day!  The kids were so excited to see Grandma and Grandpa.  Rayna's been telling everyone this week that her grandparents were coming on Saturday.  We had a little family baseball game and I think Molly was the star player!  Maybe we'll talk her into playing baseball after all!  We are so thankful for Grandma and Grandpa Hines!!

Rayna had another bad seizure this morning so we spent some time at the ER again today. It was so scary, but she's back to her spunky little self tonight. Please pray for our sweet girl. She started a seizure med tonight. I was hoping to avoid medication, but it looks like it's needed. I'm so thankful for the life of this little girl.

Only in NC

Winter coat, hat, scarf, mittens, and FLIP FLOPS!  Only in North Carolina!

Almost Spring?

Although the cold weather is supposed to return tomorrow, we have really been enjoying these last couple of warm days. We've been playing outside and going to the park a lot. I think we are all ready for Spring!

Many Hats

I'm pretty sure Aaron is going to be a doctor when he grows up. Or a construction worker. Or a baseball player... :)

Lunch with Friends

I was just cleaning pictures off of my phone and realized I never posted this one. All of us ladies took Michelle out for her birthday a couple of weeks ago. I am so thankful to work with all of these awesome, Christian ladies.
